Michael Poliza is an award winning photographer based in Hamburg, Germany specialising in wildlife and nature photography.
He travelled to the great lakes of Africa to capture the amazing spectacle of millions of flamingos from above. The lakes are brightly coloured from algae that rises to the surface in calm weather, or rich mineral and salt content, and are renowned for the number of flamingos they support. The pink feathers of the flamingos caused by pigment in their food supply contrast beautifully with the intense blues and greens of the water.
Michael says “Discovering and travelling are my passion. I love to be in nature, away from any sign of civilization. Photography taught me to engage in tranquillity again and to wait patiently for a special moment for days in order to understand the rhythm of the wild.”
Michael has recently opened an online shop where you can buy prints of his work.
